Peachy Keen Cobbler Recipe

This is the last week of peach season here on the East Coast, so stock up! Whether you only have a few peaches left, or have been stockpiling them dreading the end of the season– We have a recipe for you!

I remember riding with my mom to the local peach orchards summer after summer to pick up buckets of North Carolina peaches. Then, sitting in the kitchen with my mom and grandmother peeling those peaches. Peach cobbler was and continues to be an in-demand staple of the household. “Wait, I have buckets of peaches too, what do I do?” Good question. The glorious thing about this recipe is that there are also instructions on how to freeze them in advance for a SUPER quick and delicious cobbler on the fly!

FYI, when I was talking to my Mom about this recipe, her tip for maximizing enjoyment of this treat was,

“We always save the last bag of frozen peaches for February, because peach cobbler in February is the very best.”

 From my mother’s mouth to your ears. February, it MUST be February *wink wink*.
